Vocal Arts

Welcome to Vocal Arts. Here you will find all you need to jump start your academic career in the field of vocal music. Once you have browsed through our website, if you find you still have unanswered questions, please contact Dr. Gerald Blanchard, Director of Vocal Music at 269-965-3931 ext. 2566. Current data shows that KCC students do far better in four-year institutions than those who begin at a four-year school. KCC is focused on the student! Those students who pursue vocal studies at Kellogg Community College will receive vigorous musical training provided by professional performing artist faculty that are equally passionate about teaching.  KCC is a student focused institution and our students receive the individualized attention necessary to reach their fullest creative potential. You are encouraged to explore this site for more detail, however, in the meantime if you have additional questions please contact the music coordinator, Dr. Gerald Blanchard at blanchardg@kellogg.edu or call 269-965-3931 ext. 2566. Thank you and enjoy browsing through our site! BCCC slide
